Record Store Day: Black Friday 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Tuesday, Nov 22, 2016 at 1:18pm

Yet again McNally Robinson Booksellers will be taking part in Record Store Day's Black Friday event on November 25th, 2016.

As with any RSD, we will be selling unique and limited edition vinyl available only at indie music sellers such as us. Stock will be limited for each title, and all RSD products will be available first-come-first-serve. For best selection, we suggest you arrive at 9:00 AM when the store opens.

If you're curious to know which special albums we're expecting for RSD, feel free to give us a call and ask for our Music staff: Winnipeg 204-475-0483 or Saskatoon 306-955-3599. We cannot guarantee that all titles will arrive for Black Friday, but we can at least let you know what we are expecting.

Also, please note we cannot and will not be selling RSD Black Friday titles before the big day. As well, we cannot hold any of the special albums — all RSD products will be available first-come-first-serve.

We hope to see you Friday!

Our Sights & Sounds for Summer 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Thursday, Aug 11, 2016 at 12:43pm

Neil Young. Earth. 2-disc CD Set $19.99. Neil Young‘s new live set, enhanced by studio overdubs, does more than offer a new take on favourites from across his storied career. In a collection of 13 songs performed without interruption over a 98 minute concert, Earth combines reinterpretations of Young's environmental songs featuring the Promise of the Real band along with sounds of the earth, from car horns to cows. The album includes tracks taken from last year’s The Monsanto Years to his 1970 classic After the Gold Rush, as well as the previously unreleased song “I Won’t Quit”. (Warner Music. June)

Jeff Beck. Loud Hailer. CD $15.99. The legendary guitarist's first studio album in six years combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power to the power of love. The record contains 11 tracks that span funk, electronic music, soul and the blues with an emphasis on vocal songs. To help him write the 11 tracks, Beck teamed up with London singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the songs, with Beck rounding out the album with two of his signature instrumentals. (Warner. July)

Paris to Kyiv. Fragmenti Remixes. CD $20.00. Paris To Kyiv’s Fragmenti was originally released in 2005, a sonic tapestry of ancient Ukrainian song fragments and contemporary sounds. Nearly 11 years later, the remix album explores crossroads between the ancient Ukrainian sounds of Alexis Kochan’s Paris to Kyiv project infused with delicately crafted 21st century electronic wizardry. Other contributors include Greece’s Cayetano, composer Joe Silva, Canadian house music pioneers Miguel Graca and Trevor Walker, and a pair of remixes by Balanced Records’ founders Kasm and Solidaze. (Indie. May)

The Beach Boys. Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Edition. 4-disc CD & Blu-ray Audio Set $95.992-disc CD Set $21.99 / Vinyl $25.99. The Beach Boys' 1966 album, Pet Sounds, is universally hailed as one of popular music's most important recordings of all time. Fifty years after its original release, the 13 songs flow like few records before or after it. But what didn't make it onto the original record — the early fragmented takes of classic songs like “Sloop John B” or the snippets of dialogue between Brian Wilson and the musicians — reveals Wilson crafting the album that would become his masterpiece. (Universal. June)

Our Sights & Sounds for May/June 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Wednesday, Apr 27, 2016 at 9:56pm

Here's what we're watching and listening to this summer...

Music CDs & LPs

Matthew Barber & Jill Barber. The Family Album. CD. $16.99. Vinyl $22.99. Jill Barber has carved out a unique niche in the Canadian music landscape with her distinctive voice and repertoire, while her brother Matthew Barber is a Toronto-based troubadour known for his soul-searching ballads and clever hooks. Together they join forces on this 11-track collection of songs written by the renowned Canadian siblings themselves, as well covering tunes by such notable Canadian musicial icons as Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Ian Tyson, Gene MacLellan and more. (Outside Music. April)

Charles Bradley. Changes. CD $19.99. Vinyl $30.99. The 67 year-old soul singer's remarkable, against-all-odds rise since the release of his 2011 debut No Time For Dreaming continues with his third album. Having earned the moniker “The Screaming Eagle of Soul," the onetime James Brown impersonator is at his most versatile and complete on the new album which is anchored by the twin themes of love and heartache. These themes are epitomized by the title track when Bradley turns a Black Sabbath ballad about a breakup into an agonizing paean to his late mother. (Outside Music. April)

Kamasi Washington. The Epic. 3-disc CD Set $29.99. 3-LP Vinyl Set $57.99. A longtime sideman for Raphael Saadiq and Erykah Badu, the American jazz saxaphonist takes centre stage with his debut album. An extravagant love letter to soul jazz, John Coltrane (various periods) and 1970s fusion leaders like Miles Davis and Weather Report, Washington creates a generous musical canvas which he uses to widen the definition of jazz by flirting with elements of R&B, hip-hop, funk, soul, and string arrangements. (Outside Music. 2015) Catch Kamasi Washington at the 2016 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Fest in June.
